Stage 1: Scholarship Application
To apply for this scheme, please complete our LSE-Sawiris Scholarship application form by 12.00 (noon) on Tuesday 23 March 2021. Please note that this deadline has now passed and we are no longer accepting new applications.
You will need to upload a recent copy of your CV or résumé in Word or PDF format, so please have this to hand when you complete the form. Your CV should clearly indicate that you have at least 10 years of professional experience in an urban-related field.
When completing the form you will be asked to confirm that you are currently living and working in Egypt, and plan to continue to do so for at least two consecutive years following the conclusion of the programme in February 2023.
Applications will be assessed based on the strength of your professional experience to date and your potential to achieve positive change in Egyptian cities.
A panel of LSE academics will review all scholarship applications and will invite a shortlist of candidates to proceed to Stage 2. Please do not proceed to Stage 2 if you are not invited to do so.
Stage 2: Programme Application
Once the scholarship deadline has passed, a panel of LSE academics will review all applications that meet the scheme’s eligibility criteria. We will then invite a shortlist of candidates to complete an application to the Executive MSc in Cities via LSE’s Online Graduate Application System.
All scholarship candidates will be informed of whether or not they have been shortlisted by Monday 29 March 2021.
Shortlisted candidates will have the £80 application processing fee waived. Instructions on how to apply to the programme and benefit from the application processing fee waiver will be emailed to shortlisted candidates. This fee waiver is only available to shortlisted candidates.
Shortlisted candidates will be required to complete their programme application by Monday 12 April 2021. Further information on the supporting documents required can be found on our How to Apply page.
All shortlisted candidates who completed a programme application by 12 April 2021 will then be invited to interviews which will take place on Tuesday 27 April 2021. All interviews will be conducted via Zoom.
